I don't think deprive is the right word here.
Every situation has both elements of positive and negative unforeseen circumstances that ironically come about. Obama as Prez would be no different but the negatives far outweigh the positives.

Likewise, the influx of illegals is both good and bad, many reasons of which deserve their own thread. But Blacks should be concerned because at some point White Man may no longer be in charge, which means all the griping done by Blacks will be met with a big resounding "no comprendo".

That's just hilarious.

Sure I want to preserve trees. They give us oxygen. I like oxygen, therefore I like trees.

And yes, I am pro choice, but I also believe the man should have just as much say in that choice as the woman. Anything less would be a measure in inequality.

And believe me, I'd love to see some of these twisted frakkers we have in prison fry for what they've done. But, as long as we're still executing innocent people, we should hold off on killing more until we get it right. Plus, economically it's cheaper to keep them alive.

I'm very anti gun legislation because it means that when King George tries to get his soldiers all up in my house at night I have no recourse (same for the government and violent criminals).

So I guess I'm a liberal. Well, maybe 82% Liberal, 18% conservative. Is that an option? Can I be neither?

I'll wear my afro pick with the fist. But hey, when there are no good candidates, you pick the one with the best gimmick. At this point, we've got the option to vote for a black man who wants change over a white man who wants things to essentially stay the same.

Voting for skin color is ignorant. Vote for what he believes in.

Mr Obama, contrary to popular belief, is not 'black'. He is ethnologically what is called a 'Nilotic', that is to say one of the 'children of the Nile', the same people as the ancient Kushans that took over Egypt and became the 23rd Dynasty there in ancient times. The so called Shepard Kings. Nubians also come under this classification. The legendary bride of Solomon, the Queen of Sheba, was also a Nilotic. Having said that, Mr Obama has oddly clung to an authentic Muslim identity passed on by his Muslim father and Grandfather before him. People name their children to succeed in their world, and so did Barack's ancestor's name him as such to succeed in the Muslim world. Neither of Barack Husayn Obama's first two Muslim names is 'haram' for a Muslim. Barack is a transliteration into English (Kenya speaks English) of the phoneticization of the Muslim name 'Buraq', meaning the magical horse that carried the Prophet to the seventh Heaven to meet Allah. Muslims do not believe that the speed of light is a valid limit of velocity and apply that belief to the Buraq, who is reputed to travel faster than light. Husayn, or Hussein, is the name of the grandson of the Prophet. So Buraq has an honestly received hereditary Muslim identity and should be open about his real religion. It would be no sin not to do so, for Muslims do believe also in total honesty. Even if many, especially Sunnah's, do not always practice it. I am a Christian, however, and have little interest in having to pay the 'Jizyah tax' in order to remain alive in a Muslim country, so if Buraq was elected I would seek to emigrate to a Catholic country like Mexico. Guess I am just on of those 'bitter people who like their Bibles and their guns' who voted against him all over the midwest. Look at the map of which states went for Buraq, western and southern states; as opposed to the industrialized states that went for Hillary. Hillary would carry these states in the general election in the fall as the Democratic party is the majority party in those states. Unfortunately, the Democratic party is a tiny minority in redneck republican dominated southern states; worse yet, the Democrats are also an even tinier minority in Mormon dominated western states. All those states have delegates, often chosen by easily manipulated caucuses. Based on those demographics, an Obama nomination will go down worse than McGovern in 1972. America was ready in 1972 for peace too, just not the kind of peace on our knees that McGrovelin wanted to deal to us.

now that is just silly.

the reason that people are PISSED that there are actually people out there who ONLY like the man because he is black is because:

1.) the presidency is not something that should be decided on race, political alliegience, or sex.

It's something that you decide on because the person is the best fit for the job.

2.) the people that only like the man because of his race are showing their true ignorance and racism themselves.

if you like the man because of his race, FINE, but do you like his stance on education, the economy, the war and everything else. or are you letting your racism blind you.

same goes for hillary supporters, do you JUST like her because she is a women, or do you have a REAL reason to like the lady?

basically, it's #ing sickening to see people say they like someone JUST because they are black/white/male/female. that is not what the election is for, it's for US, as a country to decide who can run it the best. it's not a beauty, or popularity contest.

if you want change, then fight for it somewhere else, don't think that putting a black man in charge of the country is going to be the magic Salve we have been waiting for to heal our wounds. because it's not. what we need is a comptent compassionate leader who cares what his constituents (the american people.) think and want.

this is by far the most childish and sickening topic I have seen come up as of late. what has this country come to, we are REALLY about to choose our next leader based on something that is only skin deep. i swear to god, it's time to GTFO of here because people like the OP are the reason that we are in the # hole right now. because we are too god damned blind to see that we are making the decisions and they are all bad ones, but here we go again. about to make another important decsion based on skin color, and political affiliation, do me a favor OP, DON'T BREED, and whatever you do DON'T VOTE!

The reality is the OP's views are probably very common. BO won North Carolina with 91% of the black vote according to what I saw.

Think about it. If BO has essentially the same policies as Clinton, what else would explain 91% of blacks voting for BO other than the color of his skin? Was it because of his position on nuclear disarmament? Was it because they approve of his cap-and-trade policies? Was it because he plans on having discussions with Iran without pre-conditions?

I would love it if somebody would have the balls to go into an Obama rally and video people answering the question, "Which of Obama's positions made you support Obama over Hillary?" That would be a fun video to watch.

I only support McCain because he's white.

OMG now I'm a racist!!!


I don't care if you only support Obama because he's black. I actually expect many blacks to support him because he's black, it only makes sense to me.

However, I think that for just as many vote for him just because hes black, the same amount or more will vote against him just because he's black.

Don't worry though, I am not going to not vote for him just because he's black. I'm not going to vote for him because hes a Marxist tool.

There's gonna be a change alright, but those changes are going to leave most of us realing. You bleeding hearts who are pushing him towards to the presidency will reap what you sow but I gotta reap it too dammit. Have you seen the recent guest of Trinity Church? The maniacal catholic priest who says we ARE responsible for what our great grandfather did, and goes on to talk about white supremacy etc etc. The crowd goes wild. The past 40 years, blacks have been given every opportunity under the sun to improve their lot in life, but the farthest they want to walk is to the mailbox to get the check. Now this black man with muslim ties has resigned from Trinity church. Are we supposed to believe that for the past 20 years, everytime anti-America and anti-White was screamed from the pulpit, that he and his hateful wife were the only ones in the audience who shook their heads and said "no that's just not right?" Hell no. Yes there's a change a comin folks. At least 4 years of reverse discrimination and a carte blanche in the black community to go even more hog wild than they already are.

Ignorance will always prevail when race is entered into the equation of life. Individualism will never be true when people consider themselves to be part of a group, race, religion etc... I'm tired of race being an issue. I feel the only way the world will be free is to put away our petty differences and strive to pursue happiness in all walks of life. I guess that's just to hard to do.


The OP is perfectly capable of voting for that reason alone but I sure wish the racism would stop being a part of it.

I'm not sure if that is directed toward me, but I want to say that it isn't whitey who made this an issue. Whitey was just strolling along, supporting a black man for prez (even though he knows absolutely nothing about foreign policy or running a country, but I digress) and lo and behold, we are made aware of Obama's closest advisor, and learn what an anti-American anti-White maniac he is, and boy did they have the wool pulled over our eyes. We thought everything was love, the stars were going to be in perfect alignment. Little did we know the joke was on us. The Lord helps them that helps themselves, that is all I can say at this time without being banned from this so-called open forum.

The black/white issue will not be solved here. Neither will the gender issue. And it definitely will not be solved by the rule of law. Ultimately, every time we try to create a piece of legislation to impose "fairness", beyond the basic equality of rights between people, it just raises the tension levels of the racist or misogynistic people who already treated women/minority people poorly in the first place. Restated, lopsided legislation meant to promote equalization as opposed to equality, incites even more bad attitudes, violence, and/or unfairness. Tell me you haven't heard people complain about afirmative action around the water cooler? Right?

People do complain about AA, even if they aren't a woman or racist - that is clearly evident in these posts. If a black person or a woman does a really great job at work and gets promoted, some people will whisper, "must have been affirmative action"... real nice huh? How did that help the calm the race/gender issue? Now the individual didn't even get credit for their real hard work and accomplishments.

Just enforce the basic equalities already in place. No person can denied anything based on gender, race, or religion and the social issues will just have to be worked out independently of the law. It takes time. It will take a fundemental change in the public's attitude to make people vote for those black or woman leaders. You can't legislate how people think or vote. How would that make sense?

I would gladly vote for a conservative black woman because I am a conservative. I said conservative, not republican, they aren't very conservative any more... that party is losing their way and another topic completely. I don't agree with the present woman or black man running POLITICALLY and I'm not going to vote for them just to give black people or women a leg up. This is the presidency! I try to help them in my daily life by treating them with equality and respect. Anything more is unfair, unequal, and akin to a reparation of some kind.

I don't have "white man guilt" and will not vote for someone who arguably will promote a more socialistic America. We are stuck with our choice for four years. Forget the gender and color and choose the person who's values you share. BTW, "CHANGE" is not a value and if you think "It couldn't get worse..." - yes it could. I'm NOT saying it will... I'm just saying ANY candidate COULD make it worse. With the power of the presidency, did Dub-ya make it worse? Seriously, Barrack seems like a smart, charismatic, educated, and well put together guy... but that's not enough... people need to really look at the issues! If you look at his platforms and you agree with them, them by all means, vote for him.

Media have constantly been asking people on the street what they think Barrack's policy platforms are and people just say "I dunno... but he's cool..." - ok, whatever... you're really upsetting to those of us who actually follow politics closely. But I'm not here to bash him. We all can vote how we want... but just don't vote for him because he's black alone.

BTW, I can't support Clinton or McCain either. No one is running who is a true conservative and that's what I believe in. Well there is one person... and that gives some of us Hope for America. Rather than change the topic to one about my favorite candidate, I'll continue with the issue at hand...

In my opinoin, change is still possible in America, but it will come from winning the hearts and minds of the people and not be simply electing a black man or white woman, or by legislating fairness by giving certain people advantages over others. I agree it will be a moral boost to blacks or women to be in control of the county... but make sure you elect a really good minority or woman because... if they do a crappy job it could have a negative effect in the future. America unfortunatly practices guilt by association...

What I cant understand why Oboma? I know an ex congressman from Tennessee who is named Harold Ford whom would have made a great leader of the US. Why did'nt anyone ever put this man up for president, I would vote for him. And I am conservative. But Oboma has done nothing not even tried to change anything, all he has is a bunch of cool lines.WOW! So if its just because he is black your as dumb as all the dumb asses that voted for him. If it was for change you had Ron Paul. So therefore you have no reason other than him being black, but all and all he will !@#$ us over just like the rest so it does'nt matter.

Whoops!! This was supposed to be a Reply to Bumbeni. Not by me



It wasn't directed to you and I'm not an Obama fan. Black, white. red, yellow doesn't matter. I would vote for any of them if they cared about America and the people. Obama has nothing to offer so no vote for me. I always hear people say " I would vote for a black guy/gal if they deserved it. Why not just say " I'd vote for anyone who deserves it and leave black and white out. That's all I meant by it.

Are you kidding me? Dont you watch the news! Democratic Senator Joe Biden told us EXACTLY why the Dems hand-picked Obama:

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

A storybook. Right. A clean black guy who can talk. That's why Obama.
